    You can use any hose clamp for that you don't need to use an oetker clamp...What other parts do you need or do you just need to re-clamp the hose?

    i have to replace the everything plastic out from the tie-rod. buddy ran into one side, demoed it. and removed the fin on the other. there doesn't look like enough room for a hose clamp to squeeze in there?

    Well you may have to improvise or order a new oem clamp for $7 I would maybe enlarge the hole a little to make a screw type clamp work. Just use some silicone around the hole to seal it up when you re install the opas fin.

    Or try an irrigation store. Most irrigation contractors use those clamps on systems they install because they are fast.
